I would be interested to see a recent photo of the grave. The photo in my possession does not reflect the earlier post.

In my photo the gravestone reads:

IN
Loving Memory of
JOHN BUMBY
DIED NOV. 2ND 1858
AGED 46 YEARS
AND SUSAN, HIS WIFE
DIED AUG. 13TH 1858
AGED 46 YEARS.
ALSO JOHN BUMBY THEIR SON
DIED MAY 13TH 1973,
AGED 32 YEARS.
AND SARAH ELLEN, HIS WIFE
DIED MARCH 8TH 1917,
AGED 81 YEARS.
ALSO THEI CHILDREN
FRANK
DIED AUG. 20TH 1869,
AGED 5 MONTHS
AND
JOHN WILLIAM
DIED JUNE 7TH 1872,
AGED 8 YEARS.

There is no mention of a stillborn child, nor is Florence or any other sibling included. I don't have a date for this photo, so it could date from after Sarah Ellen's death but before the death of any of the other children. It is all a little odd, as Harry predeceased his mother Sarah Ellen, but is not mentioned, and Samuel and Edwin both predeceased Florence, yet she is listed in the previous post...

The above listing was obtained from the burial register for what is now a private burial site.

The company that owned the cemetery went into voluntary liquidation in 1967 and in 1968 the majority of headstones and memorials were removed, none of the bodies were exhumed. I believe relatives were compensated for the loss of their graves. It is now called St. Georges Field as within the campus of Leeds University. As a child I would visit most weekends with my grandmother and it was a fascinating, scary place, visiting now it seems much smaller than I remember it being.
